FW: Balakrishnan Kuppuswamy!!!! .........Just for FUN

During work, Raman and Narayan were chatting: 

Raman: Narain, I've been attending night classes for 5 months now and I have an exam next week. 

Narayan: Oh! 

Raman: For example, do you know who is Graham Bell? 

Narayan: No 

Raman: He's the inventor of the phone in 1876; if you take night Courses you would know this. 

The next day, the same discussion took place: 

Raman: Do you know who Alexander Dumas is? 

Narayan: No 

Raman: He's the author of "The 3 Musketeers", if you take night courses, you would know this. 

The next day, once again: 

Raman: And do you know who Jean Jacques Rousseau is? 

Narayan: No 

Raman: He's the author of "Confessions", if you take night courses, you would know this. 

This time, Narayan got irritated and said: And you, do you know who is Balakrishnan Kuppuswamy? 

Raman: No 

Narayan: He's the guy roaming with your wife!! If you stop night courses, you would know.

Donkey and Dog - One spear tow heads :).........hope you enjoy it

If you read this please decide who is intelligent- Donkey or the DOG! 

The Donkey and the Dog -You may find one in your midst… 

There was once a washer man who had a donkey and a dog. One night when the whole world was sleeping, a thief broke into the house, the washer man was fast asleep too but the donkey and the dog were awake. The dog decided not to bark since the master did not take good care of him and wanted to teach him a lesson. 
The donkey got worried and said to the dog that if he doesn't bark, the donkey will have to do something himself. The dog did not change his mind and the donkey started braying loudly. 
Hearing the donkey bray, the thief ran away, the master woke up and started beating the donkey for braying in the middle of the night for no reason. 
Moral of the story “One must not engage in duties other than his own" 

Now take a new look at the same story... 

The washer man was a well educated man from a premier management institute. He had the fundas of looking at the bigger picture and thinking out of the box. He was convinced that there must be some reason for the donkey to bray in the night.. He walked outside a little and did some fact finding, applied a bottom up approach, figured out from the ground realities that there was a thief who broke in and the donkey only wanted to alert him about it. Looking at the donkey's extra initiative and going beyond the call of the duty, he rewarded him with lot of hay and other perks and became his favorite pet. 
The dog's life didn't change much, except that now the donkey was more motivated in doing the dog's duties as well. In the annual appraisal, the dog managed "ME" (Met Expectations). 
Soon the dog realized that the donkey is taking care of his duties and he can enjoy his life sleeping and lazing around. 
The donkey was rated as a “star performer". The donkey had to live up to his already high performance standards. 
Soon he was over burdened with work and always under pressure and now is looking for a NEW JOB ... !!!!
